I am a PhD student working on butterfly genomics. I am conducting a Europe wide study of Coenonympha tullia and therefore would like to request assistance in accessing samples.
If you are willing to help that would be fantastic!
I currently require samples of the butterfly from all over it's European range which includes, Finland, Norway, Germany, France, Switzerland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Belarus, Lithuania, Ukraine, Denmark, Austria, Czech Republic and others. I am situated in the UK so I can access my own samples for for the UK.
Dry specimens would be okay but stored in ethanol would be best, and if you are willing to send them to me I would be very grateful; and you would also be contributing to scientific research to conserve this species.
